“Carrie” Gets Limited Series Adaptation

Chloe Grace Moretz in "Carrie" (2013)

Carrie is getting the television treatment. 

Multiple outlets confirm that a limited series of Stephen King’s 1974 novel is headed for the small screen. 

The forthcoming limited TV series at FX is the latest adaptation of the iconic horror novel, which follows high school misfit Carrie White, who discovers she has telekinetic powers. The most recent adaptation was the 2013 feature film starring Chloe Grace Moretz as the titular character. The most famous adaptation of the story is Brian De Palma’s 1976 movie starring Sissy Spacek. 

King’s Carrie joins other of the author’s titles that are currently being adapted — The Half Dark at MGM and Epix’s reimagining of Jerusalem’s Lot. 

Collider was first to report the news.
